How to design application to suit different resoultion.

I am making an application in VB 6.0 and the resoultion I am using is 640 X 480 resoultion . My question is if some one changes the resolution of its PC will the application change accordingly without disturbing its looks or do i have to do some coding to make it suit the user's resolution .

Windows takes care of this, and the forms will maintain their set sizes.  Just remember, a form created in 640x480 that fills up the entire screen will not fill the entire screen in other resolutions (like 800x600).

What you do have to worry about is Large Fonts vs. Small Fonts... Windows does not always do a good job at this.

I suggest that you review your application in different resolutions and font sizes to make sure your program looks like you want.

By the way, you can change the resolution and font size of windows by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Properties", then selecting the "Settings" Tab.

I didn't get my query answered. Anyway thanks. What i want is that My controls in VB application forms should not get centered or move to left or right when the resolution changes instead i want it to remain it in the same area where they were placed just reducing the size. or look.

If you don't program the controls to move on the form, the will not move. Everything will stay the same relative to the screen size.
